Committing to being in the third stage in a relationship requires a certain transparency that goes beyond being truthful. It requires us to go deeper and confess the truth in our hearts. It required me to say to my partner, “I’ve been feeling really disconnected from you lately. What can we do about that?” He began his way back, remembering his magnificence. And we’ll see where this dance leads us.
1. Change The Way You Think
When it comes to matters of the heart, we're all guilty of making excuses about why we didn't put ourselves out there. But contrary to popular belief, it isn't easier said than done. Laurel's advice?
"Trying" is a pre-emptive excuse for failure or not doing it at all. Do your best. Have zero excuses. If you don’t find success, make a midcourse correction and try a different tact. Keep at it until you do find success."
